Because of this I have done quite a bit of research into various mail order companies that provide supplies of interest to chainmail makers. I have divided these suppliers into two lists: The first is Recommended Suppliers. These are companies that I have dealt with directly and been pleased with their products and service. I have not been paid or compensated for these reviews in any way. The second list is other companies that I have come across or been told about over the years. If you are a supplier or know of any suppliers that would be of interest please email me with the details.

In this Instructable, I describe how to take steel wire for making electrical fences and turn it into split rings suitable for creating a chain maille garment. While other instructables document weaving rings into garments, or how to construct a mandrel (winding rod and stand), the originality in this instructable is in the winding tool that allows for very reliable, high speed winding, that creates perfect coils of wire every time.

(see step 3) This project is also documented at my personal website.
